What are the rules for nursing. I hope to drink one beer tonight with some friends (they are drinking whiskey and vodka mixed drinks but I don't feel comfy with hard stuff) and can't remember the rules.

Yup - safe to drive, safe to nurse.

Personally, I enjoyed a couple hard ciders last night.  Good stuff.  ;)

One beer shouldn't do anything against you.  I'd make sure you nurse BEFORE you drink it.  Give it a little bit of time to dissapate before the next round of nursing.  But you will be fine.

In fact one of the most common old wives tales from days past was to drink a beer daily to keep up supply.  I guess the hops helps boost output

I'm going out tonight with my husband; first date since the baby was born almost 7 months ago. I plan on enjoying a BIG ASS glass of red wine with my steak.

I read some where and don't hold me to it (lol) that you can enjoy a beer about 2 hours before nursing again.

Cheers =) Enjoy!
